The Delhi Police on Friday arrested six people including two personal members of the Apollo Hospital for their alleged involvement in an illegal kidney trade in the national capital.
According to sources, Three of those arrested are believed to be middlemen. They are suspected to have sold at least four kidneys in Delhi so far. Three potential donors, including two women, are also among those arrested.
The police found about the racket after a couple was seen fighting in a hospital. The husband had allegedly donated his wife’s kidney without her consent.
The mastermind of the kidney trade racket has been identified as Anish. The staff of the Apollo hospital allegedly used to inform him about needy patients and Anish, in turn, provided kidneys to those in need at exorbitant prices.
The Delhi Police have registered a case in Sarita Vihar station in this regard.
